On Wednesday’s episode of SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Daily, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) observed that the Biden administration’s ostensible inquiry of the Pentagon’s inability to properly recruit its objective for U.S. armed services people “comically resembles” O.J. Simpson’s assertion that he is looking for the “true killer” of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson.
“Military recruitment is in crisis,” according to Cotton. In reaction to its recruitment failures, Breitbart News reported in June that the White House was considering reducing health and medical criteria to enlarge the qualifying requirements for military enlistment.
“The Biden administration’s search for the reasons behind our military’s recruitment crisis is somewhat like O.J. searching for the true murderer.”
Cotton cited “vaccine requirements,” and “gender ideology,” as examples of left-wing ideology becoming increasingly entrenched in the armed forces as a cause of the nation’s declining interest in the military, and the Supposed “racial radicals” and “white nationalists” being sought by the Department of Defense.
“The fiasco in Afghanistan undermined confidence in our military leadership, said the U.S. congressman from Arkansas. “When it’s obvious that the vaccination does not stop transmission between people, especially when talking about one of the younger, healthiest populations in our society, the vaccine mandates were completely meaningless.”
As issues “contributing to the military recruiting difficulties,” Cotton mentioned “the extreme gender ideology agenda of the Biden Defense department” and “the witch hunt for so-called “racial extremists” and “white nationalists, which showed up absolutely nobody in our military.”
As he put it, “Kids do not however join our military to learn how to use proper pronouns; they enlist because they want to learn how to kill bad people.”
A House Armed Services subcommittee hearing on “white supremacy in the military” was held in February 2020, and participants from left-wing groups including the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and Southern Poverty Law Center were invited (SPLC).
In addition to his service as a U.S. soldier in Afghanistan and Iraq, Cotton, an Army officer, was a member of the Old Guard. He is the author of the upcoming book as well as Sacred Duty: A Soldier’s Tour at Arlington National Cemetery.
